It's almost Christmas

Can you believe it? Less than a month until Christmas.. and only 4 more days until I feel I can officially get into the Christmas spirit. December 1st is the beginning of my 4 weeks of Christmas  carolling my way to work (lucky for all involved I drive to work and don't catch public transport!) and I can put up my Christmas tree. I won't pretend that I haven't listened to the odd carol already - after all, who can blame me when my ipod is set to shuffle? - but now I can do it in earnest.

Time has absolutely gotten away from me, so much so that I completely missed posting this for Sparkles Monthly Challenges!

It's time for another challenge at Sparkles, and of course the theme is:

CHRISTMAS IS COMING

For my DT work I just couldn't resist making a card with Mistletoe, a gorgeous Kenny K image.


Of course I coloured her with copics, and then Kindy Glitzed all the fur trim on her outfit so she sparkles under the light. Embossed red cardstock with a snowflake design and a white enamel snowflake charm complete the wintery Christmas theme.

I hope you'll join us at Sparkles Monthly Challenges. Our challenge is sponsored this month by Lili of the Valley.

Entered into the following challenges:

The Crafty Pad - Add some Glitter
The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop - Die Cut/Ribbon/Charm

Fantastic card! I love the glittery fur trim, but I'm thinking her legs would get a little chilly where I live! Good thing it's summer for her Christmas!!
